If you like rich, greasy food, you'll love Marigold Kitchen. Couldn't find anything on the menu that was light and healthy. They wouldn't serve the Irish oatmeal without pancakes. They don't know how to make a dry cappuccino.

There were three in our party and we all enjoyed our breakfasts. The large selection made it difficult to decide what to order. We highly recommend the tofu scrambler, the pumpkin buckwheat pancakes (GF), and the breakfast potatoes. Loved the ambiance of Marigold and service was friendly and top-notch.

Decided last minute to try a breakfast place and wanted one walking distance from our hotel on capitol square. Reviews were good for this place and boy, it did not disappoint. Were very impressed with the flavor and quality of the breakfast food we had. Ham and gruyere omlet and Marigold breakfast sandwich were so delicious. The flavors were so... More

Marigold should be good - we waited in line for over 20 minutes to get in and order only to be presented with potatoes that were overcooked and spicy, eggs that were well prepared by largely flavorless, and overpriced drinks. The place is well run and some dishes must be good or else there wouldn't be such a big line.... More

We tried this splendid place for lunch the day we walked down State Street from Campus and around the Capitol. This restaurant is just a block from the Capitol and easy to find. We selected sandwiches from the menu and were delighted with the fresh ingredients, the delicious bread and the friendly service. The atmosphere is basic, but fun and... More

Tried the scramble special, coffee with side of bacon (4 pieces $4). Food arrived cold - yet the restaurant was not busy. Got a re-do on the potatoes - they were spicy hot, not great, even when warm. Scramble - very eggy, not so much ham. Bacon side also arrived cold; they simply microwaved it, and then over-did it. You'd... More

The kiddos really enjoyed the pancakes (chocolate mint!) and the duck confit with scrambled eggs was insanely good. Everyone left with clean plates.

Meeting friends for lunch here was a treat. It was a buzzing, busy place, but the food was very good and the service was super friendly. A great value overall. It's very casual, but has some authentic charm!
